F-150 with manual transmissionScott Hoag and MRT Performance receive the Product Excellence Award from Ford

The MRT TKO started off as just a regular automatic two wheel drive regular cab 2015 Ford F-150 truck.

MRT envisioned what the modern day Ford Lightning would be and engineered it into a 2015 F-150 EcoBoost Total Knock-Out (TKO). The key feature of this build is the TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission that powers Ford's Twin Turbo EcoBoost motor.

Installation of the TREMEC Magnum transmission required a QuickTime bell housing, an Exedy performance clutch and flywheel, Wilwood pedal box, along with custom fabricated brackets and shifter.

The MRT TKO delivers the power through a Drive Train Specialists lightweight driveshaft, limited-slip rear differential, and ring and pinion. Air Lift and MRT custom fabricated parts lowered the suspension and added performance handling capabilities. The braking system has been upgraded with Wilwood front disc brakes.

The MRT TKO F-150 rides on a set of Forgiato performance 20-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo performance tires. Exterior modifications include a PPG two-tone paint job, MRT custom fabricated aluminum heat extractors in the hood, Team Z motorsports aluminum rear spoiler and aluminum tonneau cover, tinted glass, and The lighting Firm's custom headlights and taillights. Inside, the truck features Sparco race seats and harnesses, Team Z Motorsports roll cage, MRT switch panel and rear seat delete with race gear organizers, Innovate Motorsports gauges, and a GPS track app.
